Best carriers

Everything you need to know to pick the absolute best carrier deal for your iPhone or iPad

An iPhone without voice and data is just an expensive iPod, and an iPad Wi-Fi + cellular without the cellular, well, you get the idea. But carrier plans, be they single line or family, dedicated or shared, prepaid or postpaid, come at a price. They also have a tendency to change over time. A lot. So how do you make sure you get the best plan - and the most savings - possible? You check back here often, of course!

And this is how Verizon failed at trolling the Internet

The FCC took a strong step today in ensuring net neutrality. Verizon... threw a childish hissy fit in Morse Code.

If you hadn't heard, the FCC took a historic vote today to reclassify broadband Internet as a utility under Title II of the Communications Act. In plain speech, this gives the FCC the same rights to regulate Internet providers as it currently does phone companies. This also means that the FCC is now also allowed to impose those net neutrality rules it proposed earlier this month.

Now, even with today's events, the net neutrality fight is far from over: Undoubtedly there will be lawsuits and challenges from broadband companies to try and get the courts to overturn the FCC vote.

But the first shot across the bow of the FCC's Title II usage wasn't a subpoena or a lawsuit. Instead, someone at Verizon thought it would be just hilarious to deride the decision with a press release in dahs and dits.
